Jesus was clear in Matt 7:14 (NIV): 'But the gate is narrow and the way is difficult that leads to life, and there are few who find it'.
I'm sticking with Jesus and not ClementofA.
I'll stick with the inspired Word of God through the apostle Paul, rather than your erroneous opinion of Jesus' words:
1. Jesus says "FEW" were finding it
2. Paul says "MANY" will be saved (Rom.5:18-19)
Actually both are right.
Jesus was referring to the situation at His time in the first century, not final destiny.
Rom 5:18 Consequently, then, as it was through one offense for all mankind for condemnation, thus also it is through one just act for all mankind for life's justifying."
Rom 5:19 For even as, through the disobedience of the one...
A few months ago there was a new thread about whether or not Jesus turned water into fermented wine, or grape juice. The poster claimed grape juice. Many disagreed. That post is now closed as it is old and had no responses for a long time. While I still believe the wine was fermented, it made me wonder about our Lord's Supper. Should that wine be grape juice or fermented wine (Mormons use water). What I found has to do with what kind of wine was used by Jews during Passover and the Seder meal. I was astonished to find it was grape juice, called "new wine." Here is something I just found and thought I would share. Note, this is ONLY at Passover, not for regular meals. There the wine was fermented.
There are two Hebrew used translated as...
I am always trying to find a “formula of life” so that I can easily find, and hold onto, happiness. Each one I come up with is always “the formula to end all formulas,” yet no formula ever seems to work for long.
1. Walk with the Lord.
2. Obey the Lord.
3. Understand that I am safe.
4. Enjoy the glory the Lord heaps on those who are obedient to his commandments.

I have been dating a guy from my church for about 8 months now. It has gotten pretty serious and he’s talked about marrying me. My mom and several other people have told me that if I have not prayed for this and God hadn’t directly told me he’s the one I should marry, my marriage will fail and I will end up unhappy and divorced. They say I should wait for God. How do I know if this is the guy I should marry? Does God have to tell me he’s the one in order to have a long lasting marriage?
i love music
i listen to non-christian music all the time, but i don't absorb their sinful message
but i love everyone, i love how songwriters express themselves through the music
now, this day i've been thinking much about "tiny" sins, and my conclusion is that to listen to non-christian music is not a sin
...because the baby can't choose to have their private parts cut up, and because the baby can't yet tell us what gender they are.
Consent seems important to them.
And yet I wonder why they don't apply the same logic to vaccinations. After all, the baby can't consent to being poked and filled with substances; they didn't choose.
Why, it's almost as if they know that vaccinations are good for their child, so they choose for them.
god will say me i am sinning? maybe usa law says: "you shall not use an adblock in your computer"
but the same usa law lets people use copyrighted images for personal use
the law of iran says grown up men marry children
so, the law of god maybe doesn't let you use copyrighted images for personal use, it's just what the USA law says but not the truth
because those clothes are fabricated by poor children and women in india and poor asian countries where the producers pay 5 dollars per month to their workers (slaves) without caring about their health and nothing
In light of President Trump determining that Jerusalem is Israel's capital and designating to have our embassy moved there, I thought most Christians would be happy and excited for the news. Maybe a lot of us are, as we wholly believe that Israel belongs to the Jewish people and has always belonged to them.
But I see a lot of Catholics, especially bishops and even the pope, who appears to be against the move and seem to care more for the Palestinian people.
As far as I know, there has never been a recognized country known as Palestine. The Jews have always said they want to live peacefully with the Muslims and they can share the land, but the Muslims appear to be the violent ones and want the Jews gone. When Israel defends itself...
